The Templar Knights of Aurora, also called the Albion Knights of Aurora, is a group that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. They were an ancient order of knights from the Echidna city of Albion who were dedicated to the Mobian goddess Aurora.
They existed approximately 9,700 years ago. They were the only force on Mobius that was technologically advanced enough to counter the early rise of Mammoth Mogul and his Order of Ixis during the Order's bid for world domination. The Albion Knights successfully destroyed all but four members of the Order of Ixis in the Forgotten War: the sorcerers Nusgau, Agunus, and Suguna (who would later merge to become Ixis Naugus), and Mogul himself.
